Post #9568108

to put pressure on the US dept of Environmental Protection to suspend the use of neonicotinoids until more research is done. It appears that these chemicals are wiping out bee colonies but the pesticide companies are a powerful lobby. The European Union recently did suspend use of these for two years. The petition asks the US government to do the same. https://secure3.convio.net/gpeace/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&page=UserAction&id=1390&autologin=true
